Remakes & Reboots

Seth “Zandrax” Zillmann and “Crazy Train” Jonathan Bolick return for the first full-fledged Geekville Radio episode for 2019!

Black Panther Nabs Best Picture Nomination

Historical news hit this week with Black Panther getting an Academy Award Nomination for Best Picture. It is very rare for a Geek movie, especially a superhero one, to get any consideration outside of technological achievement. While Seth and Train agree that it will likely not win the coveted prize, it is still a huge achievement for such a movie to even get nominated.

You can check out our review of Black Panther back on Episode 192.

Ghostbusters 3 Announced For 2020

Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman, has officially announced a Ghostbusters film for 2020 that will be in continuity to the two 1980s entries.

This has sparked renewed interest from fans.  A tweet from original star and co-writer Dan Aykroyd implied that he would be interested in helping out with the new project.

Leslie Jones, who stared in the 2016 reboot, did not seem as happy. She tweeted her disappointment that her movie will be ignored in this new sequel.

We did review the 2016 reboot, favorably we might add, and chime in on the idea of ignoring the reboot. And whether it is a sensible move or not.

Solo Hits Netflix

Solo: A Star Wars Story, which famously underperformed at the box office last year, made its debut on Netflix. This gave Train a chance to finally catch the film, and compare his thoughts as to why it did poorly compared to Rogue One.

Seth’s review of Solo can be found here for contrast. Our Rogue One review is also still available for reference.

Finally, Seth and Train discuss all these reboots, remakes, and sequels that have been made lately. Why is it some are great while others fall short? And why could some of these movies work then and not work now?

With all this 80s talk, it’s only fitting Train gives a 1980’s One Hit Wonder Spotify playlist.
